  • The journey to the venue is more interesting than the venue. Granted it is a huge and very healthy looking snake, but it seems to be nothing more than a money grabbing process. A dingy room to the rig...  more »
  • The site is not worth the detour. Just to see a huge boa fed chicken with his keeper. For Burmese people a place to spend a Sunday calm.

  • We go by tuk - tuk. The trip was downright horrible. We made bardasse constantly and the landscape is not nice. In some places we see that oil changes. The Snake is not worth the trip!

  • A big python snake can be seen in this pagoda. 8 viss of chicken meat was fed once a month. People believed that this snake was reincarnation of monk' mother. When we arrived there staffs and monks are forcing visitors to donate for construction of hall building.
  • Don't waste your time - really not worth it imo
  • The snake is 129year old. Reincarnation of the monk
  • Literal place name - you come here to stare at a HUGE snake that doesn't move as people place money on it for some reason.
  • The greatest thing of this pagoda is the way to reach it. Walking in muddy street you can find pigs, cows, chickens, wild dogs and plenty of people say hallo and smiling you. The pagoda itself is nothing related others in Bago, and the snake looks sleepy (maybe dead:). Well, good for your picture with a not-in-cage big snake. Entry is free but it feels mandatory give a note to the singing/praying python seeker.
